What to do in the event of a crash
Try to stay calm – don’t panic. Switch off the ignition, and activate emergency hazard lights. Check to see if anyone is injured, and if they can be assisted immediately. Keep yourself and others off the road.
If someone is injured, dial 000 (free call) and ask for either Ambulance, or Police, in order of urgency. Be prepared to tell the Emergency Service: It’s a car crash, where it’s located, how many people are injured and your name.
Exchange names, addresses, registration numbers and insurance company details. Do not admit liability for the accident, or blame yourself publicly (this is for your own legal protection). Contact your insurer at your earliest opportunity. They will work with all parties involved in order to determine responsibility.
When you have been involved in an accident and you are no longer able to drive your vehicle, it is law to contact TOWING ALLOCATION on 13 11 76. Towing allocation will then allocate a towing company to tow your vehicle. Tell the tow truck driver to take your car to Westwood.
